Format: Paperback
Serving a small church for over twenty years, and am amazed at the insights inside of this invaluable book. Along with "Dont Sing Songs to a Heavy Heart", one of the most valuable practical books I've read. I minister to the same people the author loves. No they are not "insane" -- MY FIRST WORKING THEORY, or "bad Christians" -- MY SECOND WORKING THEORY, but the small church is maybe "heaven" -- at present, my third working theory.

I loved this book. The author gave real stories of his pastorate. Some are very humorous. I could see myself in this book in several places. The author does not sound like he knows it all or that he is so pious that he is going to tell us all we need to know. He is very down to earth with very practical and vital information. I would encourage anyone working with or in small churches to read this book.

Format: Paperback
Pappas's 20 years as pastor at the Harbor Baptist Church on Block Island gave him a laboratory to work in. But he also took his thirst for understanding the small church on the road, doing scores of programs around the country. This book is the best written about understanding the entity called the small church. His comparisons of pastor to missionary and anthropologist really make it clear. And, this book may be out of print, but it's just been revised and rereleased in 2000. So try and find the updated one. Steve Burt, national small church consultant and author of Activating Leadership in the Small Church, and The Little Church That Could: Raising Small Church Esteem.
